EQultrasound red hand probes (continuous emission) can be used to treat joint mobility limitations, which often are the consequence of prolonged immobilization, bursitis, tendonitis, muscle spasms, scar tissue or adhesions.
When associated with exercising EQultrasound can significantly increase the joint range of motion. In fact by rising the temperature of deep muscle and tendon structures before or while performing stretching exercises, EQultrasound can promote tissue elongation and reduce the risk of fiber damage and tissue injuries.
Continuous ultrasound emission increases collagen elasticity and it is very easily absorbed by structures high in collagen fiber, like joint capsules.
Joint structures are very often responsible for range of motion limitations and treating them with our therapeutic ultrasound makes it much easier to stretch them during exercise.
Furthermore, heating deep tissues while performing stretching exercises will increase the level of comfort for the horse.
In conclusion the use of EQultrasound in conjunction with stretching exercises is ideal for the rehabilitation of the joint range of motion, where joint movement has been inhibited by certain equine conditions.
